What can I do to expedite my applications approval?
Food Service Department
Do I need to fill out a new application each school year?
Yes. All applications MUST be renewed every new school year. You MUST use a Red Bluff Union High School application form for the current school year.
Have the eligibility guidelines changed from last school year?
Yes. The eligibility guidelines change every year.
Why is it necessary to use the same name as it appears on the Birth Certificate?
The School District uses the birth date and name information from a student's Birth Certificate for all school records. The only way the application can be validated is by using the same information. Nicknames and family abbreviations will slow down the application process.
Do I need to fill out an application for each child?
No. Complete one application for all students in your household. We cannot approve an application that is not complete, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to the Food Services Office, the School Office or any Snack Bar window.
Will the information I give be checked?
Yes. We may ask you to send written proof of the information you give.
If I don't qualify now, may I apply later?
Yes. If your income or circumstances change (ie: number of people in your household) you may apply again.
May I apply if someone in my household is not a U.S. citizen?
You or your children do not have to be a U.S. citizen to qualify your child to receive reduced price or free meals.
Who should I include as members of my household?
Include yourself, all children who live with you and all other people living in your household, related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives or friends).
Whose income must be included on the application?
If you count a person as a household member on the application, their income must also be included.
What if my income is not always the same?
You should list the amount you normally receive BEFORE deductions. For example, if you normally receive $1,000 each month, but you missed some work last month and only got $900, put down that you get $1,000 per month. If you are normally paid for overtime, include it.
Why do you list All Other Household Members?
The consideration for approval of an application is based on income and the number of household members. Therefore, it is required to list all members of the household.
Are applications available in other languages?
Applications are available in English and Spanish. Applications may also be available in other languages.
Why do I need to fill in a Social Security Number and sign the application?
These two sections are required fields and it is very important that these sections be completed. If this information is not completed, the application will be returned to the applicant. However, a change in the regulations now requires only the last four digits of the social security number for the adult signing the application be listed rather than the entire social security number.
RED BLUFF HIGH SCHOOL'S MEAL CHARGE POLICY
Each parent/guardian is encouraged to fill out a meal application to determine if the student qualifies for free or reduced-price meals. If there is no application on file or the student’s status is determined to be “paid,” the student is expected to pay for meals at full price. Red Bluff High School institutes a "no debt" policy for charged meals. Thus, any food items that cost $0.01 and above are charged the full price of that meal or snack.
